Jason and I spent our first night away from Jordan last night and things went perfectly. Jordan is used to my parents visiting and they know her routine, so I think that made everything much easier. My biggest worry was that she would get upset when it came time to rock her and lay her down. She has never had anyone put her to bed besides Jason or I. My mom read her stories and then my dad rocked her for a little while and then put her to bed. They turned on the monitor and she started singing (Happy Birthday), which is a common way for Jordan to put herself to sleep. We came home after breakfast and we didn't even get much of a reception, lol. I might be a little hurt if I was not so happy that things went so well.
I look back at how things were when she was young. We used to have a child that screamed herself to sleep in our arms and didn't sleep well in her bed for a very long time. I'm also thrilled that Jordan felt secure enough to have my parents there instead of us. I know some of it is personality but I think doing what we felt was right for Jordan was a big part of how things have come along. We have come such a long way.
Just wanted to share with the people who were always there to listen when things were tough.
I am so glad that everything went so well!! I was thinking about you last night!
The only time J's been away from us for the night is when we were in the hospital when T was born. I was a nervous wreck, as not only was he away from us, but he was also staying at my parents for the first time. He did great. It was at that point that I realized, that he had the same securities and felt the same level of comfort you describe.
I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves!!
